  1. I give the Binder family my deepest condolences.Tim was a great guy.

  2. I have great memories of Tim from when we were growing up parted ways as we matured but the memories of him are fond

    • Hi Laurie Tim has such a fun childhood and you were a wonderful friend! It would be nice to see you at Tim’s service if you can make it! This is his sister Sue

  3. I’m so saddened to hear about Tim. I was Tim’s supervisor st Warehouse Specialists, and then UTi when they (UTi) took over.

    Tim started at Wareouse Specialists as a part time temp, but quickky advanced to being my Lead man. I can say, without a doubt, Tim was one of, if not my most, loyal employees. When Tim and I were at our 1st warehouse, with UTi, I often times left him with the keys to the warehouse, as I was in the hospital due to my son’s frequent hospitalizations, at that time.
    I always got honest feedback from Tim. I never once worried how the warehouse employees were doing in my absences as Tim was that good.

    But more than all of that Tim was just a great guy. He came off as grouchy and perhaps a bit challenging, but when you got to know him you found out that you had a friend for life. Tim Binder would give anyone, and I mean ANYONE, the shirt off of his back, no matter how you felt about him, or he about you. He was just that kind of a guy. Perhaps one of the most miss-understood individuals I knew, but had a heart of gold.

    I only live down the street from Tim, but I just found about his passing today (12/11), as I myself am still recovering from my recent surgery, so I haven’t been out and about. However, I had a chance encounter with Tim on Wednesday, November 20. He was walking down the street when I was getting my mail. We talked a while, I’m glad we had that time to talk.

    And just so you know Kendall Best, if you’re reading this, Tim spoke highly of you when I asked him if he still had any contact with UTi employees.

    RIP Tim Binder. And to the Binder family. I’m sorry about your loss. Tim really was one of the ” Good Guys”

  4. Ted, Susan, Kurt, Mark and Sebastian ~ We are keeping you in our thoughts and praying for peace for each of you. Life’s been rough on your family lately. Lots of love and if you need any thing, please reach out.

  5. Sorry I’m just reading this now but we’re always caught up in our lives specially this time of year. Also sorry I couldn’t make it to the services. Thank you for Sharing Tim with me. I’m who I am because of the relationships I have and had, and Tim and you were an important part of my life. I love him and you.
    Love Jody Naylor
